The only problem you will have when you dine here is choosing from the wonderful choices presented in the menu. We make this a regular stop when travelling from southern Ontario to eastern Ontario. Everything we've had here has been excellent.

I have eaten here, for lunch, a number of times, and attended a wedding reception once in February of 2015---love it. The food is great. It is a quiet, relaxed, clean space and the service is excellent.
